Fundraising time again!
#1
Howdy friends! As you know, there's no such thing as a free lunch, and that counts for message board hosting sites too!

We pay on a 3-year cycle, and it's that time again. Our renewal fee this time is $503, due by January 10th, 2019.

In order to keep the board up and running, we need to beg you for funding.

If you can possibly make a donation, please send it to our admin paypal account:

scrappinchatadmin@gmail.com using friends & family.

We have about $139 left over from previous fundraisers so need to come up with another $364. I know not everyone is in a position to donate (especially this close to the holidays!) but whatever you can give will be appreciated. I will update here as we reach our goal.

And maybe I'll remember to bump this up in about 2 1/2 years so we can start fundraising earlier in the year when it doesn't hurt so much!

Thanks!

It's okay Penny, every little bit helps!! We may have to do a one year renewal instead of a three-year if that ends up being easier for people.

Is it a lot cheaper to do a multiple year? Perhaps we could do one year now, then in about 6 months or so collect for a 3 year again?

Or how about a collection once a year to be used for a three year renewal?

Maybe in July when it's not a high expense month for most folks?

We are doing great! Only $125 to go! Enjoy your Christmas and I'm sure we'll be able to gather the rest after the first of the year!

I'm late seeing this but I'll donate something right now and it will be there for next year. If I don't do it now I will forget.

Can "we" BTT this every so often? Six months? It'd be easier to send a few bucks now and again over the next three years, then a chunk at Christmas.

Or I could just write the email (scrappinchatadmin@gmail.com) down on a sticky note and put it in my calendar!

Okay, stuck it in March ... Smile

I agree - let's send this out every six months or so and people can donate if they have the funds.

Sounds good. The paypal address we use is not used for any other purpose, so any funds sent will just sit there and wait till we need 'em.

Yep, we're all set for now but if people want to add money as they have it through the year, this PayPal account isn't used for anything else so the money will just wait till we need it.
